People, ex-colleagues who benefited from late leader's policies mourn him

Shortly after Jiang Zemin's passing was announced on Wednesday, hundreds of bouquets of flowers could be seen at significant places in the life of the late Chinese leader.

Floral tributes were placed on the doorstep of Jiang's residence in his hometown of Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, as well as in a square at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, his alma mater.

Jiang passed away at the age of 96 and has been mourned by many witnesses to his achievements, from former colleagues to people engaged in or benefiting from the groundbreaking work he initiated. They have voiced determination to build on Jiang's legacy and work for the nation's greater prosperity as led by the Communist Party of China Central Committee with Xi Jinping at its core.
